Save Internet Radio! Petition

From an email from Rusty Hodge, General Manager and Program Director, SomaFM.com:

[O]nce again internet radio is facing huge additional royalties for broadcasting music. These royalties are in addition to the ones that we pay to ASCAP and BMI, and are a royalty that is only paid by internet broadcasters. Over-the-air (AM/FM) broadcasters are explicitly exempt from this royalty; it only applies to internet broadcasters and subscription music services.
The music industry never tires of demonstrating its utter cluelessness through these attempts to turn back the clock.

Don't let their idiocy ruin the future of music. Please sign the Save Internet Radio! Petition.
